Step 1: Open Explore
To open Explore
- In the Zendesk product tray, click Explore.
If it's your first time running Explore, we'll walk you through setting things up. If Explore has been started before, you'll see the dashboards library and can start looking at pre-built reports right away.
Step 2: Get access
Depending on which version of Zendesk Support you are using, the method to get and assign access to Explore differs.
If you're using Support Professional
- On the Explore setting of the People page of Zendesk Support, choose the level of Explore access you want. You might need to get an admin to do this for you.
If you're using Support Enterprise
- If you're a Support admin, you already have admin permissions in Explore. If not, any admin can configure the Explore setting in any Support Enterprise custom role to give the permissions you want.
For more help, see Activating Explore and configuring your access.
Step 3: Look at reports
We've built a bunch of useful reports with many common business scenarios. Here's how to dive in and start looking at them right away.
To look at reports
- In Zendesk Support, open the product tray.
- Click the Explore icon (). Explore opens in the Dashboards library which shows the available dashboards for the Zendesk products you own.
- From the list of dashboards, choose the one you want to view.
Step 4: Take things to the next level
